The Devil has come against us in the form of NEGATIVE BLOGS to destroy our Mary Kay world! Or has he? It is interesting how people have different perspectives about things.
We all know, that nobody knows everything and concerning things of faith, many thoughts abound. In fact, theologians routinely sit on opposite sides of the same coin, staunch in their positions and unbending in any way.
Since many NSDs in Mary Kay express their Christian Faith, you can imagine how PinkTruth is “perceived” by them. PinkTruth is definitely influencing the hearts and minds of consultants and directors all over the globe, and for the most part, with the same device that was used to get us “in.” The “I-Story.”
The Power of the personal testimony can not be refuted. It is after all, a personal experience, not dependent on whether you agree or not… it simply is. The Nationals stand at guest night after guest night telling the same story of rags to riches, from their perspective, omitting the uglier details of their rise to fame and fortune, with a goal to influence all women everywhere that their lives would be so much better if they were a “glad I did” girl and not a “wish I had.”
Now that production is dropping and Directors are quitting and emails are flying and hard questions are being asked of the NSDs who up to now hadn’t really even allowed themselves to take a long hard look at the WRECKAGE they are leaving in their wakes, the cry of the emotionally immature is “The Devil is coming against us!”
That’s right. They’re now claiming that Pink Truth is inspired by the Devil.
Snap out of it ladies! You are grown women.
If you stand on the stage and lie about how much money is being made, whose judgment do you think is falling?
If you manipulated your Units to reach NSD, who would want that exposed?
If you manipulate your people and capitalize on their insecurities and desire to be “in your space,” how is that a servant’s heart?
If you knew what was happening and did nothing but look the other way, the “devil” would be proud of you, not tearing your organization down.
You watched and applauded as your consultants finished Queens Court of Sales, and you KNEW it was mostly on credit cards. Your 20 pages of “T” consultants stand in testament to the skill of your “product on hand: speech and “empty wagon” speech and the reality of the difficulty of selling this product.
You have rationalized them coming in and going out for years, skimming your commission check off their failed reality.
You have presided over this kingdom as your Offspring Directors and in some cases, Offspring Nationals struggle and struggle to stay afloat… denying that a business built on the acquisition of NEW CREDIT CARDS is a fraud. There isn’t even interest in recording actual sales to consumers because frankly this company doesn’t want to know the truth.
Your “find a way- make a way” instruction to your downline to make production one more month, drives your bottom Directors deeper into financial RUIN. You SEE their personal orders. You KNOW they did it themselves. You POST THEIR NAME in your Newsletter as High SALES, when you KNOW they were desperately trying to save their Unit.
And you think the DEVIL has come against you? Can you even be that blind?
Get ready for the bubble to pop ladies. The gig is up. Start the downsizing and get out of the mansion. What you are about to eat in chargebacks is humble pie.
“For those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge (wo)men into ruin and destruction.” I found that in the Greek Scriptures. (1 Tim 6:9)
So here is the reality. PinkTruth tells story after story of former consultants’ and Directors’ lives. Those stories influence others to have the strength of character and ability to step away from Mary Kay, should their experience resemble what they are reading. We recognize that some women are good sellers of this product, but not many. We also recognize that the Career Path is deadly and a trap to the vast majority of women and that Mk is a quagmire of manipulation and deceit.
This Pyramid scheme is most likely where your “devil” lives… and whatever is tearing it down (be it de-pinking women or the Almighty working through them), is working to set women on an honorable path, and to set them free. Doesn’t sound like the “devil” to me.
